This Is Not Good

Nato helicopters from Afghanistan have intruded into north-west Pakistan and attacked a military checkpoint near the border, killing as many as 25 Pakistani troops, intelligence officials in the country have said.
As they did before, Pakistan promptly closed off its border to stop all supply trucks going into Afghanistan.

This comes after a sustained propaganda campaign, which included this damning documentary. Also also, right after the memogate, which cost the Pakistani Ambassador to the US his job.

I don't know if there is some sort of plan behind this or if this was done by frustrated soldiers who are convinced of that Pakistan is playing a double game.

Either way, this is not good news. Pakistan is a very volatile country, and for me, its itchy fingers on a nuclear stockpile is much more worrisome than a nuclear Iran could ever be.
